Apartment 1601, Falcon Wharf, London
One-world design, through architectural and interior design, seek to add value through efficient space planning, and reduce long term running costs through maximising opportunities for energy reduction and renewable energy production. This extensive refurbishment and alterations to a 5000sqft penthouse apartment by the River Thames, at Falcon Wharf, by one-world design was completed in February 2012. The design reveals previously unseen panoramic views of London’s famous skyline and increases the usable floor space and value by reconfiguring access arrangements. The resulting accommodation is divided into 4 suites, with separate bedrooms, bathrooms, walk-in wardrobes and changing spaces, study areas and children’s play space. There is also family kitchen and a large central hub space which is arranged to host both social gatherings of family and friend and more intimate family moments.
The project includes cooling by natural cross ventilation and individual room coolers and heaters that are all 4amp maximum load providing maximum adjustability for occupied areas and personal comfort. The apartment has electric under floor heating to all bathrooms and retained the existing water heating system. The project improved insulation to ceilings, walls and floors. All new lights are 5 watt LED and 1 watt niche lamps, there is over 200m of LED strip lighting and these are controlled by a wireless lighting circuit control. All rooms are fitted with a wireless Sonos surround sound system operated by individual room i-pads. All showers are low flow and wc’s are dual flush and all white good are A** rated, the oven is a low energy full induction oven.
